Suspension of the HOME Commitment and CHDO Reservation Deadline
The Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2019 includes a provision suspending the 24-month commitment requirement for Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO) set-aside funds, as well as continuing the suspension of the 24-month commitment requirement for regular HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) funds. Both deadline requirements are suspended through December 31, 2023.
The CHDO suspension applies to any CHDO funds that were deobligated in 2018 or that would be deobligated through 2023 due to a Participating Jurisdiction's (PJ's) failure to commit the funds to a CHDO project within 24 months. Effective immediately, HUD will cease enforcement of the CHDO commitment deadlines until such time as the suspension is permitted to lapse. HOME Deadline Compliance Status Reports (DCSR) posted to the HUD Exchange by HUD after February 28, 2019 reflect the suspension of CHDO commitment deadlines.
HUD will continue to enforce 5-year expenditure deadlines for FY 2022 and earlier HOME allocations.
If you have any questions about the suspension of the CHDO commitment requirement, please contact your CPD Representative in your local HUD Field Office.
